More PC Parts More Power Needed

Installing a lot of peripherals on your CPU may not always be feasible especially if you don’t have the proper power to support it. For most people, this is an overlooked aspect especially if you own a desktop that has the default power supply of 400 watts. All power supplies have a certain limit and while you are fond of wanting to have additional parts like TV tuners, separate sound cards or any other card that can fit into the spare PCI slots, be sure to measure the level of power that each card needs.

This is one reason why the need to upgrade to higher capacity power supplies in the market exists. Normally, power supplies can be offered up to 700 watts and you have to wonder why such a high powered wattage is needed. Well, the answer really lies in the fact that provisions for added parts normally require power for them to function.

Depending on the use of a PC, it is common to see these options available anyone especially if you are a techie geek. Apparently all people are concerned about is add-ons, negating the need to provide equal attention towards system requirements that are normally indicated on the box of these extra parts when purchased.

So if one day you find your computer suddenly blacking out with no power, chances are you blew more than a fuse. Either your power supply has given up or some other part (hopefully not the motherboard!) may have been fried. Now that is something you don’t want so just be wise when you add on to your computer. Check out the power requirements.

Unplug A Powered Off Computer

When your computer is not in use, the normal understanding is that it is no longer running and is not in any manner threatened. As far as network connectivity, this is true. But as far as power surges or electric current threats are concerned, think again.

Once your computer or your automatic voltage regulator is switched off, it does not end there. The simple task of also making sure that the plug is not plugged in the outlet is another thing and apparently this is because power still runs on the sockets even if there is no power being taken from it. Especially if there are thunderstorms, be advised that a sudden electric current of any sort may affect your computer.

As it is, the plugged computer serves as a conductor to which sudden voltage surges can make its way to your computer. While not operational, it can fry your power supply, network cards or your motherboard without your knowledge. And how will you know that your motherboard has been fried? Well just switch it on and you will find no response. Chances are that at this stage, you will think that there is just some loose wires or connections somewhere. Sadly you are looking in the wrong direction.

That is why it is advisable that computer owners should be wary at times when there are storms in your area. Aside from the fluctuating current, your computer is a sitting duck and may eventually be a candidate for sudden bolts of electricity that can be a cause for computer wrecks. Take the initiative and unplug your computer from the socket. It doesn’t require much effort to do so.
